Rakeem's story

 
Rakeem is of Creole ethnicity and was born in Belize City on January 22, 1992. He is one of six children. His Mom works as a domestic at the local hospital. He was diagnosed with Ventricular Septal Defect in 2003 after he suffered an acute case of bacterial endocarditis. Unfortunately, although his defect is hemodynamically insignificant, he has become a candidate for closure as he developed endocarditis a second time leading to moderate tricuspid valve insufficiency! He is awaiting placement at this time.
